Vorobyevy Gory Metro Station – Underground view

You’ve heard a lot about the beauty of Moscow’s subway. Almost every station within the city center is unique and breathtaking. But if you decide to visit Moscow South-West (you just have to, there are a lot of spots there), you will find out, that the stations are covered with a glazed tile and look like a bathroom in the communist style Khrushchyovka.

Vorobyevy Gory is a kind of oasis. When the train passes this station, the Muscovites revive and turn from gloomy machines into curious kids. People just enjoy the view no matter what season it is. Even without leaving the train they can see a huge Luzhniki stadium (the process of renovation doesn’t affect its beautiful front), the Moscow River and a hill with the MSU building on it. But I recommend you get off at the station.

It was built in 1959, and it had been closed for reconstruction since 1983. When the station was opened again in 2001, it became an example of modern subway design, which was later applied to the majority of the new stations. The thing that makes the difference is the exhibition, which usually runs there all year round. It may be an exhibition of costumes, it may be a ceramics exhibition, and it may also be an exhibition of nothing. There is no official site to check the schedule of the exhibitions, so feel free to ask about the specific dates in the comment section.
